The use of context is important in interactive applications. It is particularly important for applications where the user's context is changing rapidly , such as in both handheld and ubiquitous computing. In order to better understand how we can use context and facilitate the building of context-aware applications, we need to more fully understand what(More)
Preparing the SunOS/SVR4 kernel for today's challenges: symmetric multiprocessing, multi-threaded applications, real-time, and multimedia, led to the incorporation of several innovative techniques. In particular, the kernel was restructured around threads. Threads are used for most asynchronous processing, including interrupts. The resulting kernel is fully(More)
PARAMICS is a state-of-the-art, parallel 'micro-scopic' traffic simulator, developed in a collaboration between EPCC and SIAS Ltd., for simulations of traffic congestion in large-scale road networks. Individual vehicle and driver characteristics are modelled, responding to perceived road and junction conditions. To allow traffic planners to predict and(More)
Although HER-2 negative tumors are thought to be less aggressive than their counterpart, there is a subset that behaves poorly. The molecular mechanism to account for this is unknown. The chemokine receptor CXCR4 is often upregulated in a wide array of cancers. Using a training dataset, we previously reported that high CXCR4 overexpression portends a poor(More)
BACKGROUND African American women have a higher breast cancer mortality rate than Caucasian women. To understand this difference, socioeconomic status (SES) needs to be controlled, which can be achieved by evaluating outcome within a population that is underinsured or low SES. We elected to examine the effect of race/ethnicity on outcome of patients with(More)
We present a novel method for globally optimal surface segmentation of multiple mutually interacting objects, incorporating both edge and shape knowledge in a 3-D graph-theoretic approach. Hard surface interacting constraints are enforced in the interacting regions, preserving the geometric relationship of those partially interacting surfaces. The soft(More)
BACKGROUND Eukaryotic initiation factor 4E (eIF4E) is elevated in many cancers and is a prognostic indicator in breast cancer. Many pro-tumorigenic proteins are selectively translated via eIF4E, including c-Myc, cyclin D1, ornithine decarboxylase (ODC), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and Tousled-like kinase 1B (TLK1B). However, western blot(More)
Feedback in surgical simulation has been limited to offline analysis of movement, time taken to complete simulation and in some cases a virtual playback of completed simulation tasks. In comparison to aircraft simulation, these feedback schemes are very rudimentary. Research in military simulations has shown that real time feedback significantly improves(More)
INTRODUCTION This document describes the LOLITA system and how it was extended to run the four MUC tasks, discusses the resulting system's performance on the required \walk-through" article, and then considers the performance of this system on the nal evaluation set. Because of the design of LOLITA, the code implementing the four MUC tasks is almost(More)
